My Sunday Feeling

My Sunday feeling is coming on, over me.
My Sunday feeling is coming on, over me,
And I bet the night is over.
Got to clear my head so I can see.

'Till I get her put together,
that old feeling won't let me be.

Won't somebody tell me where I laid my head last night?
Won't somebody tell me where I laid my head last night?
I really don't remember,
But give me one more cigarette and I think I might.

'Till I get her put together,
That old feeling can't yet arrive.

Need some assistance, have you listened to what I said?
Need some assistance, have you listened to what I said?
Oh, I don't feel so good.
Need someone to help me to my bed.

'Till I get her put together,
that old feeling is in my head.


Some Day The Sun Won't Shine For You

In the morning, gonna get my things together.
Packing up and leaving this place.
I don't believe your crying, there'll be a smile upon your face.

I didn't think how much you hurt me.
There's something that I'll laugh about.
Bring in the good times baby, and let the bad times out.

That old sun keeps on shining,
But some day it won't shine for you.
In the morning I'll be leaving. I'll leave your mother too.


Beggar's Farm

Taking chances, and your reputation's going down,
Going out in the night time, good thing you made no sound.
But you don't fool me, 'cause I know what you feel.
If you ignore the things I see, someday soon's gonna
Find you way down on Beggar's Farm.

I pay my money, for no returns,
I think I need you, gonna find someone.
Oh, you don't fool me, 'cause I know what you feel.
When you go wild and I ask you why, I won't worry
When I see you lyin' down on Beggar's Farm.

But you're on to me, gonna turn away.
Won't even listen when you try to say
That you were only foolin' around, 'cause I know what you feel.
But if you ask me nicely, woman, I'll wake up early one day soon
And I'll visit you down on Beggar's Farm.


Move On Alone

I feel so sad now that she's gone.
I've been lovin' that woman too long.
There's no place to go, because my friends have all moved.
Got nothing to sit in the sun.

Got tired of crying.
Guess I'll move on alone.

My bed is so empty and my heart has grown cold.
Guess I'll die before I grow old.
The place is untidy, that's cause I ain't done my dirt.
I just grown tired of thinking.

Got tired of crying.
Guess I'll move on alone.

It's Breaking Me Up

[???]
In so many ways.
I've got to get through
[???]

Ah, baby, I said you're breaking me up woman.
You're breaking me down.
Your lovely little pieces
Scattered around.

[???] your words
'Cause they mean it hurt
[???]
The [???] out of me.

Oh, baby, yeah, said you're breaking me up woman.
Ah, you're breaking me down.
Your lovely little pieces
Scattered around.

[???] run dry
And you wonder why
I found a new woman
Who [???] if you can.

Oh, baby, I said you're breaking me up woman.
Uh-huh, you're breaking me down.
Your lovely little pieces
Scattered around.

A Song For Jeffrey

Gotta go away tomorrow.
Gotta get away, my god.
I'd take you along with me,
But I could not go so far.

Don't see what I do not want to see.
Don't hear what I don't think.
Won't be what I don't want to be.
Continue in my way.

Oh, ceased to see where I'm going.
I've ceased to see where I'm going.
I've ceased to see where I'm going to.
I don't want to.

Every day I see the morning
Come on in the same old way.
I tell myself tomorrow brings me
Things I would not dream today.

Gotta go away tomorrow.
Gotta get away, my god.
I'd take you along with me,
But I could not go so far.

Don't see what I do not want to see.
Don't hear what I don't think.
Won't be what I don't want to be.
Continue in my way.

Oh, ceased to see where I'm going.
I've ceased to see where I'm going.
I've ceased to see where I'm going to.
I don't want to.
